The Easter Book Tag (Easter Book Bunny)

easter egg, real painted egg for Easter
Real egg painted for Easter. Yes, that's my hand.
 
Hello-Hello! Doctor Who just premiered last weekend!!! Wait... Wrong post. Then... Is this the post about the Bunny who was forced by freshly resurrected Jesus to lay chocolate eggs - aren't they made of plastic now? - and then to hide them - no reason behind that - for children to find? At least in Romania the Easter Bunny brings real presents like Santa. Hmmm... Don't think so. I am mixing Christianity with Pop Culture.
Oh! Look! I used the "question inside a question" concept, literally.
I should probably look at the title of my post and stop babbling. :D
It's... A Book Tag related to Easter.
I was sort of tagged by Abi from What Makes A Good Book. (<-- link to original post and blog.) Well....... She tagged "anyone who wants to do this tag." And I said, "Why not?"
Let's get started!
 
1. Rabbits- A book that you wish would multiply- So a book you want a
sequel to (that doesn't have one)!
Let me check my Goodreads... The first book which comes to my mind is:
 
The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid a YA sci-fi fantasy book as a standalone
 
It is a standalone I read recently. A sci-fi fantasy well done. I need more from that world and those characters. 
 
2. Egg- A book that surprised you
 
An Amber in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir fantasy series based on Roman EmpireLetters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer a YA contemporary romance standalone
 
For this one, I have two books. A recent release (Letters to the Lost) and an older one (An Ember in the Ashes).  Before starting these books, I was skeptic with low expectations and barely remembering their synopsis. Thus, I got gladly surprised. If you want, you can check my review on Letters to the Lost here.
 
3. Hunt- A book that was hard for you to get your hands on
Basically, almost all the books I put on hold from my libraries on OverDrive. As of right now, I am number 268 on 43 copies for this book (I already read 32% of it):
 
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling screenplay
 
4. Lambs- A children's book that you still enjoy
I did not like books and reading when I was little. Shocking! I know. I liked the stories to be told to me by my grandmother. Sooo... I searched in my memory, on Google and Goodreads and I decided on this:

Capra cu trei iezi Ion CreangaMother-Goat and Her Three Kids by Ion Creanga English version
 
5. Spring- A book with a cover that makes you think of spring
 
The Darkest Part of the Fortest by Holly Black book standalone
 
Even the book itself has lots of spring and fairytale elements.
 
6. Rising from the dead- A book with a deceased author
Mostly all Romanian authors I read and other classics... Which are very few. Or I can put one of those ancient Greek works... Well, I am choosing two books:
Camil Petrescu The Last Night of Love, the First Night of War and Three Plays by Aristophanes: Staging Women 
 
Camil Petrescu The Last Night of Love, the First Night of War, Ultima noapte de dragoste, intaia noapte de razboiThree Plays by Aristophanes: Staging Women
 
7. Baskets- A book that is in your Amazon cart or on your wish list right now
 
Tara Duncan Dragons contre Demons by Sophie Audouin-Mamikonian book
 
I wish the Romanian and English speakers (Romania, U.S.A., and/or U.K.) to finish translating this series cause my French is bad. I will have to use Google and a dictionary if I want to finish this series. COME ON! In Romania, they stopped at book seven while in USA only the first two books are translated. Really! Really! Really! You cannot do this to me. Publishing companies from Romania and USA get your act together. I need this series finished. 
 
8. Candy- A book that is sweet
 Is love considered sweet? Then, I pick this one:
 
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Pearkins contemporary romance
 
9. Peeps- tag people!
Are you feeling compelled to do this tag? Consider yourself tagged, mate.
